Division Two Clubs Cry Foul

GREATER ACCRA Division Two clubs, led by officials of Mandela F/C and Capital Sports have petitioned the Ghana Football Association (GFA) over the alleged injustice displayed by officials of the Regional Football Association (RFA).

According to Kwabena Ofori, Chairman of Dansoman-based Capital Sports Club, after the completion of their Division Two league last season, some of the clubs- out of the 48 teams that took part in the championship- had cases pending at the GFA Disciplinary Committee that were not resolved.

Speaking to DAILY GUIDE SPORTS, he said at last year's RFA Congress some decisions were approved including the number of clubs to be promoted to Division One and those to be relegated to Division Three at the end of the league season.

He said there was however no discussion or agreement that the following league season would be run with 60 clubs from the initial 48 clubs approved at the last Congress.

“The 2006/07 Congress did not in any case approve to add more clubs from the District clubs where there was no active football last year,” he noted.

He said it was preposterous for the RFA to bring 12 clubs from nowhere to join the Division Two league without any major competition.

Mr Ofori who disclosed to DAILY GUIDE SPORTS that he still had a case sent to the Chamber of dispute Resolution through the GFA and still had response, said his outfit would appeal to the FA to look into the matter.
